Actually it's:

Section "Screen"
# ...
      Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "false"
      Option "RenderAccel" "false"
# ...

Section "Extensions"
# ...
      Option "Composite" "disable"
      Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "false"
# ...

    But getting back to basics, maybe you should try starting up X
with twm to see whether or not the whole setup is broken. Then you'll
be able to run glxgears and some xfce4 apps to determine whether or
not opengl is broken or xfce4 is busted somewhere along the way.
